Monksnail Basic Information

Monksnail

Type Rare Creature
Official Description
A gigantic sea snail from the Frost Islands. It hates bright lights, and so remains in the sea during the day. At night, it surfaces where squids and other such potential prey gather. It possesses an organ that projects various patterns of light onto its skin. Its eyeball-like glow and colossal silhouette are the dread of every sailor in the region.

How to Use Monksnail

How to Get Monksnail

Found in the Frost Islands During Nighttime

area around monksnail.png
Monksnail can be found in the sea in the Frost Islands during nighttime. So whenever you're in the Frost Islands during nighttime, make sure to look towards the open sea to check if there's a big jellyfish-looking creature with two yellow eyes moving about. It should be easier to spot from high ground.

Exact Location on Map

To see it as quick as possible, fast travel to Sub-camp 2 and look to the sea in the east!
Frost Islands

Fast Travel to a Camp and Head Back

If you don't find Monksnail there, try fast travelling to a camp and head back. Though its appearance is random, it should appear in one specific place only, like all Rare Endemic Life. You can also try waiting for a few minutes until it appears.

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
